2021 Lake Sonoma Winery Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
The first pick of the 2021 season was our Pinot Noir which was harvested in late August. Using two Dijon clones - 115 and 667 - each was made as separate lots to increase the unique clonal differences which were then blended to create a well-rounded expression of Pinot Noir. The 2021 vintage was bottled early to retain a fresh, crisp quality that pairs well with food. Aged 7 months in a combination of 40% new French oak, 20% neutral oak and 40% stainless steel.
The 2021 vintage opens with aromas of black cherry, blueberry and warm earth.
On the palate, fresh cranberry and rhubarb flavors lead to notes of red brick, rosemary and oregano.
Pair with grilled salmon, mushroom risotto and asparagus topped with a Meyer lemon cream sauce.
